Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari denied media reports quoting Sindh chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah who said that the lockdown imposed to curb the spread of Covid-19 would be lifted in all provinces starting Monday.

“Sindh’s Chief Minister, Syed Murad Ali Shah, firmly said that Sindh did not end the closure on Monday and” we are entering the second phase of the closure with some additional restrictions, especially at the hotspot, “the PPP head wrote on his official Twitter handle on Friday.

“In a statement issued from CM House, the chief minister said that several media outlets gave the impression that the lockout ended on Monday, which was completely wrong. The CM said, “We are entering phase-II where tighter controls on hotspots are being started,” he clarified in a series of tweets.

Bilawal urged the Center to act immediately to ward off new locust attacks

The statement came a day after Prime Minister Imran Khan announced that the National Coordinating Committee (NCC) with the consensus of all provincial governments had decided to end the locking caused by the corona virus in different phases starting from 9 May.

Under the second phase, Bilawal said, “minor exceptions will be given to some sectors such as the construction phase-2, and isolated shops in the environment will be allowed to operate under standard operating procedures issued by the government”.

“He [Sindh CM] adding with certainty that air, rail and public transport will continue to be closed. “

Earlier in the day, during a speech at a press conference in Karachi, CM Shah said Sindh agreed with the federal government’s plan to facilitate locking and the decision announced by the NCC would be implemented.

“Decisions announced by the federal government will be fully implemented in Sindh,” he added.

Locked in Sindh will be loosened along the direction of the federal government, said CM Shah

Pusat and Sindh disagreed about steps to flatten the coronavirus curve and have issued a barrage of criticisms against each other. The province is pushing for tight locking while the federal government wants to relax restrictions by considering their impact on the economy and lives of the poor.

The chief minister of Sindh said shops in the residential area would reopen starting Saturday. However, he added, restrictions on shopping centers, wedding halls, hotels, restaurants and all types of public meetings will still be imposed.

“These guidelines will remain in effect until May 31 in accordance with the directions of the federal government and we are ready to comply.”

He appealed to residents to remain at home as much as possible even though the takedown was locked and wearing masks if they had to leave.

Shah stated that the provincial government did not compete with anyone and stressed the need for all stakeholders to work together.
